5 Fun Things To Do To Get You And Your Family’s Mind Off Your Troubles

There are a lot of troubles facing the world today.

With Covid and pandemic anxiety causing upheaval in our lives we can easily get lost in all the fear and negativity.

This does not help our peace of mind nor does it promote serenity and inner peace.

For those with kids, this year’s back to school certainly looks much different than ever before.

It seems like from one day to the next, we don’t know if they are to go to school or work remotely today.

And we worry about what if we’re sending them into danger.

Your kids are likely anxious too and uneasy.  After all, their routine is no longer routine.

And then to top it off, today is Labor Day.

And unemployment is at an all-time sky high!

It is okay to take your mind off all the bad news.

It is okay to not watch the news this week. AND it is okay to take some time for yourself and do something fun!

So, I have some ideas for 5 fun things you can do to get your and your family’s mind off your troubles.

Comedy movie night with your family –

Grab the popcorn, get a hilarious DVD, or find one on your favorite movie streaming service and just laugh.

Laughter is a known healer.

The Mayo Clinic published a report that said, basically…

“Whether you’re guffawing at a sitcom on TV or quietly giggling at a newspaper cartoon, laughing does you good.

Laughter is a great form of stress relief, and that’s no joke.”

And, according to Help Guide…

“With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships and supporting both physical and emotional health.

Best of all, this priceless medicine is fun, free, and easy to use.”

Game night –

Games are fun to play in groups, and there are many to choose from, including the good ole tried and true charades.

Gather your family or a couple of friends (keep it at 2 or 3 max maintain pandemic safety) and have a ball.

Richard and I did this Saturday night.  We went to one of our friend’s house.

There we 3 couples there, and the intent was to play games.

But we were enjoying just talking and catching up so much we never made it to the games.

But it was just what we needed!

And it just felt so good to be able to spend time with the people we love.

We all need that human connection, and that’s hard to get right now.

Create a hiking treasure hunt –

Find a nature spot near your home and go and hide some stuff out there.

Create hints for those you invite to find the stuff and give a prize to the first person to gather everything on the list.

This is a great activity that you can do with your kids, family members and friends.

It also gets you outdoors where nature can help clear your mind and reduce stress.

According to Stress.org…

“A study by Science Direct found that spending time outdoors can help improve mental health.

According to their research, nature excursions can help alleviate feelings of time pressure and mental stress.”

Cook a gourmet meal and have a family formal dinner party –

If you like to cook but never had the time, now is a great time to make that gourmet meal.

Gather the recipes, go shop and get cooking.

Have your family including the kids engage in the cooking and set up process.

Get out the fine china and have a formal dinner party with formal attire and all.

This is a great experience for the kids to have and something they are not usually exposed to.

If you are single, do the same by inviting a couple of friends over.

Disco Saturday Night –

You likely can’t go to a nightclub right now, but you can create one at home.

If you can swing the cost, buy a cheap disco ball on eBay or Amazon, or just get some blue and red light bulbs for your living room.

Create a playlist, or perhaps you have some old disco CD’s laying around (don’t worry we won’t tell anyone).

Set up a bar and make drinks, turn out the lights, and let the music take you to fun zone!

The last thing we want to do during these crazy times is wallow in our troubles.

So take charge, distract your mind, and have some fun!

It’s good your mind, body, and spirit!

Now I’d love to hear from you.
